FCT Election: Victory In AMAC Good Signal For 2023 – PDP


The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described its return to power in the Abuja Municipal Council (AMAC) of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) as a sign of victory for the 2023 general elections.

The PDP National Chairman, Dr. Iyorchia Ayu, in a statement on Sunday, in Abuja, said the victory in the FCT area council election would be replicated in the Osun and Ekiti states governors’ elections.


“What we have just achieved in Abuja, the seat of power, will be replicated in Ekiti and Osun states later this year, culminating in our take-over of power at the centre next year, to usher in a better, more prosperous, and secure Nigeria.

“PDP is back to rescue Nigeria and the rescue begins from the seat of power in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory, FCT,” he added.

Ayu said that the victory in AMAC was “a great omen” under his watch as his leadership would lead PDP back to winning ways and rebuilding Nigeria.

“The victory of our great party, the PDP, signposts the promise of a better Nigeria under my watch, leading this team of dedicated and committed party members.

“The victory at the FCT polls of Saturday, Feb. 12, represents a great omen under my watch, as we lead PDP back to winning ways and rebuilding Nigeria.”

Christopher Zakka, the PDP candidate, polled 19,302 votes as against the 13,240 votes of his closest rival, Murtala Usman of the APC, to win the election.

“This victory is dedicated to all leaders of our party, particularly the state governors, NEC members, NWC members as well as the millions of party members across the nation,” Ayu said.

Meanwhile, results of the six Area Councils has been declared by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

According to results of the poll declared on Sunday, the All Progressives Congress (APC) was declared winner of the chairmanship seat in Gwagwalada, Kwali and Abaji while the PDP clinched AMAC, Bwari and Kuje council areas.
